Micro Machining of Medical Devices

MeKo presents numerous innovations at COMPAMED / MEDICA 2019

Sarstedt, August 28, 2019

For more than 25 years MeKo has produced components with narrow tolerances and perfect surface quality as a contract manufacturer for all well-known medical companies. At COMPAMED / MEDICA in Düsseldorf MeKo presents innovative techniques and materials on booth #J07 in hall 8a.

High-precision laser systems make it possible to achieve tolerances of less than 5 µm by machining metals and bioresorbable materials using lasers. Not only do MeKo’s modern ultra-short pulse lasers cut and drill precisely, they also create clean, perfect interfaces.

In addition to the precise laser cutting of implants, such as stents and heart valve frames, one of MeKo’s primary competencies is laser drilling microholes for Drug Delivery Balloon Catheters (DDB). It is possible to achieve hole diameters from 2 µm. Thanks to these tiny holes, DDBs can dispense drugs directly using dilation.
